Recent studies suggest indoor air quality (IAQ) and productivity of employees are related factors. Healthy air quality directly contributes to the performance of staff.
Better air quality translates to fewer pollutants in the air and more oxygen. Improved oxygen flow to the brain results in better cognitive performance, while symptoms of oxygen deprivation include a decline in cognition. Understanding the relationship between the two topics will help employers improve both air quality and the health and performance of their employees.

Two striking facts perfectly illustrate why we need to place air quality at the top of the environmental and human health agenda. First, the quality of the air we breathe has a significant impact on our health and wellbeing; globally, air pollution is the leading environmental cause of shortened life, contributing to the equivalent of 5% of all deaths worldwide. Second, each of us inhales more than 25 million particles with every breath we take; the more contaminants we ingest, the greater the chance of sickness and ill-health.
Clean air plays an imperative role in the life science, healthcare and pharmaceutical process chain. Many studies have inferred that in moderate levels of air pollution the damage to human health is irreversible. In the life science industry where biological life or living organisms are at play, it is vital to maintain utmost hygiene along with superior indoor air quality. Camfil’s high-efficiency air filtration solutions are used by many global life science industry specialists in cleanrooms, production areas, and laboratories, including many global biosafety labs around the world.
During winter, the air we breathe feels fresh and clean thanks to the cold. What many don’t understand however is temperature is not the only difference. Our hands feel drier, static charge builds up easily, our exposed mucous membranes dry out. What’s happening, and is there anything we can do to counteract it?
For a safe school operation, healthy and virus-free air in the classroom is needed to avoid infections and diseases. Viruses, such as COVID-19, can spread through the air in the form of aerosols. Depending on factors including ventilation rates and particulate levels, these viruses can remain airborne for several hours. Indoor environments can experience a higher concentration of aerosols (high viral load), which can increase the risk of infection.
